Grade 9 Career Fair Day
This is a really fun event where students have the opportunity to learn about a variety of career paths. Last year, students were able to chat with doctors, nurses, emergency first responders, accountants, dj’s, sound engineers, radio producers, plumbers, hair and make up artists, web designers, professors, pilots, RCMP, zoologists, movie stuntwomen/men, auto mechanics, and border control officers to name just a few!
If you are a parent who would like to volunteer to be a guest speaker at this year’s event, please let us know by emailing Ms. Lacroix at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to have you share your expertise with our students!
This assignment will be provided the day of the event for students to complete while attending the Career Fair Day held at REMSS. The alternate assignment below is for students who will be away due to a parent excused absence.
My Blueprint Portfolios & Assignments: This program will act as a portfolio for students to reflect on their personal learning journey and on the Core Competencies from Grade 9 to Grade 12 in preparation for their Exit Capstone Interview in Grade 12. This portfolio will act as the main portal for students to submit their Career 9 assignments. Initial set up and examples will be provided during scheduled class time throughout the year. If students require extra help, they are encouraged to come and see Ms. Lacroix in room 1158 during Flex or Ms. Hibi in the counselling area.
